Our Water and Waste Education team have developed, produced and released DVDs, brochures and factsheets to help students and teachers learn about water and waste sustainability.

The following is a list of resources useful for schools and the general community relating to water studies and waste recycling. Many of the resources listed are available at the Toowoomba Regional Library. Please view the online catalogue for availability.

 

Teacher resources

  1. 'At the turn of a tap' is a teaching resource that we have developed to assist teachers to better inform students on local water issues. This resource can be used to match water related lessons within the current curriculum. Please contact us for the resource.
  2. 'Follow the flow' is a DVD which gives an overview of our water infrastructure, describing and explaining how our water is sourced and the water treatment processes used to provide a large urban community with a safe and secure water supply. All schools should have received a copy, please check with your school library.
